Apply Online for an e-Card


During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering e-Cards as an option for new patrons who are not comfortable with entering the Library building to apply in person. An e-Card allows new customers to apply online. You may apply for an e-Card by completing the online application and emailing it to library@seguintexas.gov.

e-Cards provide temporary access to our digital resources for new members that are residents of the City of Seguin and Guadalupe County. Our goal is to help community members "Stay Home, Stay Safe" and to facilitate customer's access to our digital resources.

Customers who do not have an existing account with the Seguin Public Library can apply for e-Cards during normal operation hours. e-Cards will only allow access to electronic resources. For full library access, apply for a library card in person at any of our service desks.
